This is a novelization of the movie by the Coen brothers. If you liked the movie, this is actually a little better.

I bought this after going to see The Hudsucker proxy live, it is one of those films that I think I've only ever seen once, but it is so memorable that I still quote it quite a lot, after really enjoying it live, I decided to buy a dvd and this book I discovered existed..

The book is just the film written down in script form, it's funny, because it is a really good film.
Y'know for kids.
